Names like "dde" do not look right. It appears that you misread
something. In a sense it should not matter.
For some reason, my fstab doesn't have any entries for my DVDRW,
DVD/CDRW and DVD (formerly hdc, hdd, hdf - zip drive was hde4)
For a long while now removable media are handled by user space
applications, like 'gnome-mount', communicating with dbus (unless
something happens to be broken at the given moment:-) and fstab
entry would roughly mean "don't do that; I am going to use something
else, say 'autofs')". 'udev' is supposed to create /dev/cdrom and
similar links pointing to right devices so hopefuly you should not
worry about this at all.
